Translation & Interpretation Services


Our client portfolio varies widely as does the range of translations we have undertaken both for Chinese to English & English to Chinese. From Edinburgh International Festival to local councils, SMEs to corporates, our translation work is carried out by contemporary Chinese translators who also have excellent English. Our standards are high, our prices are reasonable and should a client require specialist translation we can call upon expertise via the extensive resources available through the University.

Translation is charged at an hourly rate which includes proofing of final artwork and liaison, where required, with the printer.

For those who require such we can provide translations from or to traditional Chinese characters.


We also offer a cost effective certified translation service for students which is accepted by the Home Office.


To obtain a price please send through the document for translation or a sample page.  Estimates are usually provided within 48 hours. Translation work is usually delivered within 5 working days of quote acceptance. An express service is offered, subject to staff availability.
